I was looking forward to reading an interesting new recipe..crackpot stew.

I always brown the beef first. I think it adds a ton of flavor.

But it might release a bit more flavor?

I've been using those prepared sauces too-- easier, and they can be tasty. There's one Thai Curry sauce that's great on chicken.

Are you putting all the veggies in early?

I don't like the consistency. Yes, I will put them in early. We're into carrots big time, in this household.

One can whole tomatoes, carrots, celery, onion and garlic ( I blend onion and garlic in food processor before adding in) salt and pepper to taste buds. Also add small potatoes. Also add a bay leaf.

Writing this I realize I haven’t made stew in awhile. Might do next week.
